  1. An update, following all the good advice I thought that I’d contact RC direct....what a waste of time! Their advice was a two liner saying that they don’t deal with visas and that I should contact the appropriate embassy or visa service, then there was four lines on how I could enhance my cruise by purchasing dining and drink packages. Typical sell, sell and sell again attitude. if my memory serves me well, when we sailed around Australia on RC and went to Bali, we were charged $35 US for the ship to obtain visas!!! Surely when a cruise line repeats an itinerary as often as this they should know what the ship does and doesn’t do in each port rather. Once again, thanks for the advice from the experienced CC members on this subject
  2. Many thanks to all for the quick response. I managed to find an email contact for the Bahrain embassy and received the following Thank you for your e-mail. As a UK citizen, you will be able to obtain a visa upon arrival at the portin Bahrain. I hope this helps but please do not hesitate to get in touch if you requireany further information. Kind regards, Consular Section Embassy of the Kingdom of Bahrain
  3. We are doing B2b 3rd and 10th february 2020 and as UK citizens it appears that we do not require visas for UAE and Qatar but the information on Oman and Bahrain is very confusing. Maybe an experienced traveller on the forum can help with the following; Does RC arrange visas on arrival in these ports? Do UK citizens need visas if arriving on a cruise ship for the day (I am aware air travellers visiting will require one)? If they are required, do you deal direct with the embassy or through a third party visa specialists? Any guidance would be much appreciated
